Can Fibromyalgia cause heel pain
6 Replies
JR - July 5

Does anyone know if Fibromyalgia can cause heel pain. I have had chronic pain for about five years now especially in my heels. I have been to every kind of doctor and they can not figure out why I have the pain. I even had surgery on one of my heels for a nerve entrapment. I also have pain in my knees and in muscles around the joints. My heels feel better walking but really hurt when I stand. In reading the symptoms I have several of them. I have had terrible sleep problems the last five years. Any answers will be greatly appreciated.

I've been diagnosed with FMS for nearly 10 years now. I get the heel pain. It seems to come and go, but at my worst moments is there. The best way I can describe it is as a sensation of a metal rod being shoved up the heel of my foot. Sometimes it is just one heel, other times it both.

Hi Karen,

Thanks for your response. I am 43 and I have had chronic heel pain for over five years now. I worked as a sales manager so I was standing a good part of the day making sales calls with my reps. I notice that it hurts more when I stand and if I am walking or moving around it is not as bad. I now have knee and shoulder pain as well and noticed the site and I have many of the other symptons especially the sleep disorder. Is there anything that you do that seems to help the heel pain?

JR,
My heel pain happens most often at night when I am laying down...although, it can happen just about anytime. I've been taking 1000 Mg of MSM daily and that seems to help with all of my pain.

JR, I have had FM for 15 years. Year 3 of FM I got severe heal pain. It got so bad, I could not stand more than 10 minutes without horrible pain. FM causes connective tissue problems. I was diagnosed with plantar facitis. I have had surgery, and it did not help. My case is severe. Don't let your case get out of hand. My foot pain is for life.

See a podiatrist. Get orthotics. Ice your foot regularly (chronic inflamation can cause permanent damage). Do leg stretches regularly. Take care of your feet, and they will take care of you.

Thanks Joe S. I am about where you were with your heals except with my job I was a sales manager where I was on my feet most of the day in customers offices usually standing. In my case, I noticed the heel pain before anything else. I can only stand about five to ten minutes before they hurt. I probably let the problem go way too long. Walking or moving seems to help. I just had surgery on the left heel for a nerve entrapment but I still have pain. I have my first visit to a Rhematoligist scheduled in August. Again thanks to all who responded.

JR
